We always bring our clients for High Tea in the Author's Lounge, even if they are in Bangkok for only a few hours - it's a revered institution. The adjoining library has a wonderful collection of books and the tranquil ambience is perfectly reminiscent of times gone by.
Bangkok, Thailand (PRWEB) July 15, 2009
Thailand In Style presents the Oriental, a luxurious hotel founded in 1876 on the banks of the Chao Phraya river. Still a favorite with visiting royalty, statesmen and other distinguished travelers, many of which made a lasting impression on the hotel, the Oriental offers its guests every contemporary luxury in an atmosphere that hints at the nostalgia of yesteryear. The original Neo-classical hotel building is home to the Author's Wing which houses four of the most exquisite and celebrated suites of this hotel in Thailand that come highly recommended by Thailand In Style since they afford guests the added decadence of soaking up the history, splendor and extravagance of this celebrated Bangkok institution.
From each of the luxurious suites, the restaurants and the tranquil tropical garden guests can appreciate the theoretic panorama of the Chao Phraya river, an endless flurry of frantic activity. Since the hotel is situated on both sides of the river it means that this River of Kings plays even more of a vital part in the experience of staying at the Mandarin Oriental. Cross the river from the main hotel buildings and you will arrive at an oasis of calm, home to a fantastic Thai restaurant, a Thai cookery school and a fabulous, award-winning spa. A modern fitness center is located to the rear of the spa and offers guests the opportunity to lose a few of the pounds gained from eating the deliciously decadent cuisine that this hotel in Thailand so expertly presents in its choice of ten wining and dining locations.
For the best French, Chinese and Thai cuisine in the region, many head to the Oriental. Certainly, Thailand In Style recommends the Le Normandie restaurant which, as well as commanding some fine views over the river, serves some of the best French cuisine in Asia. Their wine selection is particularly good. Other options include; the China House, an avant garde eatery inspired by the vibrant 1930's Shanghai Art Deco period featuring a modern interpretation of classical Cantonese cuisine; Sala Rim Naan for excellent Thai cuisine beside the river; and the colonial Author's Lounge with its white rattan furniture and evocative ambiance which makes it an excellent place for afternoon tea.
"Thailand In Style is a big fan of the Oriental for its style, nostalgia and history," remarked Irstel Jansen Marketing Director for Thailand In Style. "We always bring our clients for High Tea in the Author's Lounge, even if they are in Bangkok for only a few hours - it's a revered institution. The adjoining library has a wonderful collection of books and the tranquil ambience is perfectly reminiscent of times gone by."
If you stay at The Oriental with Thailand In Style over the summer, you can enjoy some exclusive benefits including extra special foie gras menus at Le Normandie, Sunday Brunch 'A La Chinoise' at the China House and a Chocolate Buffet in the Author's Lounge every Wednesday. Thailand In Style guests also have the option of checking in as early as 9am and checking out as late as 6pm, making your stay at this Bangkok hotel much more convenient. And, if guests stay more than five nights at The Oriental Hotel with Thailand In Style, they will also receive a complimentary lesson at the Thai Cooking School to learn the art of preparing traditional Thai cuisine alongside a professional chef (two people).
